Nigeria, DR Congo draw 1-1 in World Cup 2018 prep

The visit is coming ahead of the hosting of the Super Eagles by President Muhammadu Buhari and their friendly against the Three Lions, the national team of England. I am disappointed to not make the final squad, Eze tweeted.

"I wish my team the best & hope to join in celebrations when they bring the trophy home!"

The Franco-German had earlier revealed that five players would be dropped from the cut but injury to winger Moses Simon opened up for probably one new inclusion, with Rohr opting for FC Crotone of Italy striker Simeon Nwankwo as the striker battles it out for the final 23-man squad that will fly to Russian Federation in the coming days.

Although the much-hyped Nigeria World Cup soccer kit isn't in stores yet, it's apparently already breaking records.

Sears closing 72 stores
After the three Sears stores close, the retailer will still have eight stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. Sears Holdings identified 100 stores that are no longer profitable and chose to close 72 of them.

With only five days remaining until FIFA's deadline for the final 23-man list, there will be a couple more players who will miss out, though none of Leicester City's players would be among them.

After the Super Eagles' 1-1 stalemate with DR Congo on Monday, Gernot Rohr pruned down his 30-man team to 25, leaving out the Lokomotiv Plovdiv defender.

The visitors came back into the match with a 77th minute penalty from Christian Nekadio after the referee adjudged Ola Aina to have fouled Zamalek midfielder Kazali.
